My friend and I were shopping at one of our Peddler’s Malls when we saw a quote we liked. I decided to make it into a sign for her.
While visiting jamie last year I went to her Habitat For Humanity Re-Store and picked up several drawer front boards. I chose one that I thought would be a good size for this sign. I used one of my Martha Stewart sample paints that I got last winter from HomeDepot (facebook page).
My friend wanted a blue to match her bedroom.
After painting it blue, I taped it off with Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape.
I used my Dutch Boy Refresh Sweetened White for the “border”.
I applied the vinyl. This font is Fontleroy Brown.
I showed the “mock up” to my friend before I put the vinyl on, and she asked “do you have any daisies?”
So I went to the Silhouette online store and purchased a set of flowers that included daisies. That is what is so great about this Silhouette and their software! No running to the store to buy a cartridge that contains images you don’t want! You simply log on and purchase ONLY what you want for .99 cents! They have some single daisies, but I chose this image that has many flowers. A lot more bang for my buck so to speak!
When you open this image, you can separate the flowers and only use what you want.
Here it is finished! She really liked it. In fact she liked it so much she decided NOT to put it in her bedroom. She put it in her kitchen so everyone can see it.
I am having some issues with my email address. If you write me an email and I don’t get back to you, it’s because I didn’t get it. Sometimes it is getting bounced back to the writer a week later. I apologize if this has happened with you. My tech person is a little too busy to work on it right now. (jamie) hahaha
I’m having a busy week getting ready for the bridal shower! I still have several things to do. I’m excited to see jamie this weekend!
